Christmas questionare

I seen this on a few other blogs and thought I'd play along!

1. Eggnog or hot chocolate? Eggnog

2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? When Jac was little we set them out but since she is older we wrap them.

3. Colored or white lights on your tree or house? White on the tree. Red and Green on the house.

4. Do you hang mistletoe? I think I did once. Actually I forgot about that! HUM where is that anyway?

5. When do you put your decorations up? Usually the first of Dec.

6. What is your favorite holiday dish (excluding dessert)? My mom makes really good meat pie and has been teaching us her recipe the last couple of years, we get together at my sisters house and make a dozen or so about 2 weeks before Christmas.

7. Favorite holiday memory as a child? Once when we lived in O'Leary we didn't have much at all that year and a knock came to the door and there was a box full of Christmas dinner items like a turkey, can of cranberry sauce and veggies and fruit. It was such a blessing to our family. We didn't get much for Christmas but my Mom made it a wonderful day because she loved us.

8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? My mom never led us to believe in Santa but we didn't tell any of our friends, we just played along.

11. Snow! Love it or Dread it? We like to have a bit but I don't know if that will happen this year or not!!! I think we are in for a green Christmas. UGG!
